Recruiting: Horns At No. 9 In Team Rankings

With two days remaining until National Signing Day LSU holds the No. 1 spot in National Top 25 Team Recruiting Rankings. The Tigers are holding off the Trojans but that may not be the case on Wednesday if USC closes with a flurry. Texas hopes to close with a flurry of its own by snagging two top state of Texas players in Franklin Okam and Adrian Peterson.

Okam is scheduled to announce his decision tomorrow evening at 10 p.m. on Fox Sports Southwest, while Peterson is committed to Oklahoma but still entertaining last-minute pitches from the Horns and the Ags.

Pete Carroll and company at USC are waiting on decisions from wide receivers Cameron Colvin and Dwayne Jarrett, defensive lineman Eugene Germany and others. How will these decisions affect Michigan? They are also waiting on Colvin and Germany.

Will Florida State close with Brandon Miller and Willie Williams? If so, how far north can they climb? What happens if Miller ends up at Georgia and Williams at Miami?

Who can make a big jump in the next 48 hours? One team to certainly watch out for is the Florida Gators. They are awaiting the decisions from quarterback Cornelius Ingram, wide receiver Derrick McPhearson, defensive tackle Franklin Okam, defensive end Derrick Harvey, linebackers Javier Estopinan and Robert Ayers and others. UF is sitting in the top two with all of these players but things could go either way on many of these prospects for the Gators.

Maryland could also jump up with the additions of McPhearson and Harvey as they are battling Florida for both prospects.

Michigan State and Alabama have been two big surprises in their respective conferences. The Spartans have 17 three-star prospects committed and are looking good for OL Roland Martin. Meanwhile, the Crimson Tide has overcome a lot of adversity to land most of the big name talent in Alabama. Can they turn running back Markus Manson from the Florida Gators? We shall find out on Signing Day.

As far as conferences go, the PAC 10 has six teams now in the top 25 -- USC, UCLA, Arizona State, Washington, Washington State and Cal. Four Big 12 teams -- Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech -- grace this final pre-Signing Day top 25. National Top 25 Team Recruiting Rankings
